Wow. The "That doesn't interest me" argument. Be it a country, console or game, it's still the worst argument you can make.
Saying, I don't think this game/console will do well is fine
Saying I don't like this game/console is fine
Saying I don't think this game/console will do well because I don't like it is assinine.
Saying you don't care about the DQ series doesn't mean it's suddenly not a very important franchise.
Japan doesn't interest me and I don't really care about DQ. DQ is a Japan seller and I don't live in Japan...So why should I care? Japan doesn't interest me mainly because I don't live in Japan and it's market is of very little importance to me. All I care about is if the systems and games I like do well here...Which isn't japan.
Will DQ do well in Japan? Yes
Do I care? No.
I never said it wouldn't do well, Just that I didn't care...which I don't. The USA is the largest market and I live here so I will obviously care about it. Europe only interests me because it's growing fast and they have more interests closer to my own than Japan. Japan is falling behind, watch Europe they are rising fast.
